The Vatican

vat-4

The smallest state in the world is hidden inside our wonderful ancient city, surrounded by mighty walls: the state of Vatican City.

During this 3-hour tour I will guide you inside one of the most important international museums, the Vatican Museums. A life would not be enough to see every single work kept inside them, however I will illustrate the most prestigious collections, such as the Pio-Clementino museum with the famous Laocoon, the Apollo and the Belvedere Torso, the Pinecone Courtyard, the galleries of the Tapestries and Geographical Maps, the Raphael Rooms and of course we will reach the real pearl: the Sistine Chapel, the papal chapel par excellence, where for centuries the Pope has been elected during the Conclave. Here we will admire Michelangelo's frescoes starting from the vault with the Creation of Adam and then enjoying the famous The Final Judgement. On the side walls of the chapel we can also admire the other splendid frescoes by Perugino and Botticelli.

The last part of this tour will take us directly inside St. Peter's Basilica, skipping the line. The largest and most important church in the world ... ..We will start from Michelangelo's Pietà, then we will see the tomb of John Paul II, the ancient bronze statue of San Peter and the countless masterpieces by Bernini.

We will end this unforgettable experience in St. Peter's Square, just in time for the change of the Swiss Guards, and for admiring the famous Loggia delle Benedizioni, or the balcony from which the Pope appears for the first time after the election.

P.S. Photos are allowed (without flash). The only exception: no photos in the Sistine Chapel.

Clothing respectful of the sacred place is recommended (shoulders and legs must be covered).

Large umbrellas, bulky backpacks and tripods are not allowed. However, there is a free wardrobe at the entrance where you can possibly leave these objects for the time of the visit.

My wife and I went on a tour of Rome's squares with Camilla. Although I was a little skeptical at first and took this tour by suggestion of my wife, I must say it turned out to be spectacular, and that Camilla was simply a fantastic guide.

Rome in a Day

Without straining we were able to see in one day all the most famous glimpses of Rome, also recognizing many places seen in the great films of Italian cinema. A day that I would suggest to anyone who goes to Rome.

Forum and Palatine
Read More
We all know the Colosseum, but perhaps we know less about the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. Camilla has a perfect way to make you "travel" in Imperial Rome, among historical data, curiosities, secrets ... Not only a great day, but also useful, very useful!

As a teacher I tell you: do it!
Read More
All my life I taught History and Letters in high school, and I thought that a tour like the Colosseum could tell me little, and in fact I had organized it mostly for my wife and my daughter. Actually, this guide has been able to illuminate some aspects of the life of Roman citizens that were completely unknown to me. We never know enough about Rome.

The Sistine Chapel is an incredible emotion
Read More
Before doing this tour of the Vatican I knew that the Sistine Chapel is one of the most important and famous works of art in the world, but I would never have imagined the emotion that entering that place caused me. There are no words to describe it. Thanks Camilla, for your expert and complete guide.

How nice the tour of the squares!
Read More
When we think of the squares of Rome we always imagine the most famous ones, such as the Spanish Steps or Piazza Navona. But those who are not from Rome, like me, often do not even suspect how beautiful many other squares of this incredible city can be! I recommend you do this tour with Mrs. Verdacchi, you won't regret it!

Do you want to send me your review?

If you have toured with me and want to say your opinion about it, send your review.

My tours are a constantly working lab, and they can also be "tailor-made"

Both with regards to continuous enrichment of single tours, and with regards to continuous enrichment of the catalogue, my work to make my offer as rich as possible never stops.

Rome offers twenty-seven centuries of history, and many lifetimes wouldn't be enough to tell them all.

In addition to the tours that you can see on this site, I encourage you to contact me for any type of guided tour of Rome and its Province, including usually inaccessible places and wonderful places close to Rome, such as Tivoli with Villa d'Este, Villa Adriana and Villa Gregoriana, Ostia Antica, or the Castelli Romani.
